While I am not certain if the Cloak of Greater Pernicity is still attainable via quest *, there is an easy explanation for them showing up in the Bazaar to this day: Players who were wearing one BEFORE the Attuneable change are removing them for sale.

I know this for a fact because I HAVE one on a lower level Paladin and never unequipped it. The item does NOT say NoTrade. This was intentional when they made the change so players who were unhappy with the stats or item in general could trade or sell it to another character.

When this cloak was first seen (late 2002-early 2003) there was no level restriction and the stats were different:

Cloak of Greater Pernicity (2002 version)
MAGIC ITEM
Slot: BACK
AC: 12
STR: +25 STA: +10 CHA: +25 HP: +50 MANA: +50
WT: 0.5 Size: MEDIUM
Class: ALL except BER
Race: ALL except FRG DRK

In 2005 they added Endurance +50.

Then after a patch in October 2005, the HP / MANA / END were increased to +120 each and Disease +25 was added. The change to this item was unintentional. Quickly recognizing the glitch (120 HP/Mana/End on an item a level 1 character could use), SOE planned to revoke the stats. This created a furor in the forums from people who had spent large amounts of platinum to buy the new cloaks. Backpedaling a bit, SOE then added the Recommended Level 60 and ATTUNEABLE flag the following month (November 16, 2005 patch). Any character wearing one BEFORE the patch could unequip and sell/trade it as long as they did not re-equip (and thus Attune) the cloak.

This patch also introduced the Cloak of Lesser Pernicity which restored the old stats and quest reward with a new name. A subsequent patch added a hand-in quest to allow exchange of the "new" cloak for the old one:
"After the next patch you will be able to turn in the 120 hit point Cloak of Greater Pernicity to Aid Fimli and he will hand you back the Cloak of Lesser Perncity which has the exact same stats as the old cloak." (Gordish, SOE Moderator, 11/18/2005) *

One unfortunate incident was the temporary replacement of the Aid Fimli quest reward during this time (prior to the Nov. 16, 2005 patch). Players who completed this quest received the Cloak of the Wise. As far as I know, SOE did not make provisions for players to exchange this for the true quest reward. *

Since then both cloaks have been made ALL/ALL and the Cloak of Greater Pernicity has had its TRIBUTE value removed.

Now, if you look through the quotes and links below, there seems to be an indication of a "symbols" quest that may still reward you with the Cloak of Greater Pernicity, complete with the 120 HP/Mana/End. I have no further information on this and if anyone out there does, feel free to post it here.

There are other minor changes to the original cloak but these are the significant ones. I hope this clears up some of the confusion.


* REFERENCE LINKS

1. SOE Thread Bug or upgrade?:

10/28/2005 03:01:54 - Gordish (SOE Moderator)
It's a bug and will be fixed.

11/18/2005 20:57:25 - Gordish (SOE Moderator)
After the next patch you will be able to turn in the 120 hit point Cloak of Greater Pernicity to Aid Fimli and he will hand you back the Cloak of Lesser Perncity which has the exact same stats as the old cloak.

11/18/2005 23:22:55 - Gordish (SOE Moderator)
The Cloak of Greater Pernicity mishap was a bug. We tried to come up with the best possible solution to fix the bug without causing problems with everyone involved.


2. SOE Thread Aid Fimli:

11/01/2005 18:27:34 - Gordish (SOE Moderator)
The problem was that we fixed one of the quests from PoP. When we fixed it the reward that was on the quest was the Cloak of Greater Pernicity. Looking at the risk vs. reward of the other quest we upped the stats on the reward to match what you needed to do in order to complete the quest.

As you know the cloak was also a reward for a much easier quest in the Plane of Knowledge. So after the last patch you now have this much better item that is being rewarded from a much easier quest. Players were doing the quest to farm cloaks to sell them on the market.

We put the cloak of the wise on that quest for now until we can get a better fix in place. The issue is that the better fix requires an items update to the servers and the servers will need to come down for that. Unfortunately we were in the middle of changing a lot of the Depths items and we couldn't do an items update last night when the servers came down.

Once we do the next items update there will be an item that will be rewarded from the quest that was an exact copy of the old Cloak of Greater Pernicity but it will have a new name.



3. SOE Thread I am starting to doubt Cloak of greater pernicity will really be nerfed:

11/02/2005 18:58:28 - Gordish (SOE Moderator)
After the next items patch to live the quest from Aid Fimli will drop a Cloak of Lesser Pernicity. It will have the same exact stats as the old Cloak of Great Pernicity.

The Cloak of Greater Pernicity will remain in game as a drop from the symbol quest that was fixed. The stats on the cloak will remain where they are at currently but the item will have a recommended level of 60 on it and it will become attunable.

The cloak of the wise was placed there temporarily to stop people from farming the Greater Pernicity cloaks until we could get an items update to live and fix it properly. Unfortunately we can not return the new quest item for those who have completed Fimli's quest while the cloak of the wise was being dropped.

I apologize for the issue with the cloak, it was a mistake on our part and I hope this solution will be fine with everyone.


11/02/2005 21:10:12 - Gordish (SOE Moderator)
People who paid 100K plat for a 120 hp/mana item is not getting what they paid for if I reset the items back to 50/50. The solution that I'm going with will allow anyone who purchased a 120hp/mana item to keep it and not be on the losing end of a mistake on our part. Anyone else who does the Fimli quest will be rewarded with the original item minus the new name.

With the items being attunable the Greater cloaks that were gotten for "free" without doing the harder quest, will eventually work themselves out of the system.

Good info, thanks. Unfortunately, that hand-in quest where you get the CLoak of Lesser Pernicity when you give Aid Fimli the Cloak of Greater Pernicity, does not work anymore.

When I tried this (I had an un-attuned cloak on an old char) Aid Fimli gave me the words "you need to hand in all items together" or something, as if he were expecting that I handed in the old quest items like the Silicone grease and such. So he gave my cloak back and no cloak of Lesser Pernicity. I would much rather have this Lesser Cloak since it is a great twink item, while the Greater Cloak is a trivial item these days.

You are probably aware of this, but, to inform those who are not, Gordish decided NOT to return the cloak to its old stats.

Instead, it will keep the new stats, become recommended 60, and attuneable. Further, as noted by other posters, it will no longer be awarded by the Aid Fimli quest. (As of the next item patch, that quest will award Cloak of Lesser Pernicity, which will give a cloak with the same stats as the CoGP -used- to have)

The newly 'uber' CoGP will continue to be the reward of a different quest.

seems a patch or two ago they nerfed the tribute turn in value of cloak from 23k and change to 13 k and change still good for a quick fix but a lot of time. used 2 be good for buying cloak in bazaar for 8 or 9 k and getting 23k in return tribute but this drove price back up to 12k for cloak which is what you are basically getting in tribute. all well.

THIS OR the flowing argil
# Apr 22 2004 at 9:16 AM Rating: Default

My warrior is currently lvl 55 and can't decide between the 2.

11-AC 7-DEX 7-AGI 7-STA 70-HP 45-END
6-COLD 6-MAGIC 6-POISON

Her strength is already above 200 unbuffed and usually maxes out with a shamy or druid in group.

So the question is do I go for the basic hit points or the stamina? At lvl 55 it appears that argil gives 5 more hp (1STA = 5hp @ 55) and has decent mellee stats and resists. Any advice?

sorry calculated wrong

10 sta = 50hp (@ lvl 55) + 50hp = 100hp
7 sta = 35hp (@ lvl 55) + 70hp = 105hp

My thinking is since shamies often max out my stamina, when that happens my high stamina gear becomes less usefull. Where as if my gear was high in actual hit points my gear and max hp would be less affected by these buffs.

The big thing to think about is: how often do you have shaman buffs. Usually you can max your Sta without really trying, with an Fo7 and stamina buff.

Raid buffed, the FA will give 20 MORE hp, since your sta will be maxxed even without it.

For that reason, RAW hp is typically considered better than STA. However, if you ONLY group, and never have a shaman, the CoGP would be better.

In almost everycase, pure hps always are prefered over stamina hps. Second, dont worry bout your strength, it is the easiest to max and shouldnt be your primary concern as a warrior. Your focus should be stamina (hps) and agility (ac). I wont go farther then that since i dont know warriors well enough beyond those points.

No, you couldn't. You can't zone into Tranquility (and this into the later zones) until level 46.

You could possibly buy 3 of the drops in the bazar, however the Bundle of Wires is NO DROP, so you would have to find someone to MQ it.

Ok...here we go. This is the hard and fast truth about the turn-in in Ak'anon if you are KOS. I turned in two sets today, (grease, horn, wires, and shard). First toon was a 65 DE/SK/Inny worshiper. Second was a 63 Trl/Shm/CT worshiper. Had a chanter buddy cast Gnome Illusion on both. The Sk was Dubious, and Shm was Indifferent. Both turn in's were successfull. I am going to assume that Gnome Illusion Potions would be just as successfull. If on Xev PST to Sallar or Shaame if you have a question.

What I did was go north- east in Steamfont to the Minotaur-caves there. Kill all and any that moves as each kill will give faction. There is also a renegade gnome necro that gives good faction. All in all I went from threatning to doubious ( or was it apprehensive?) in two hours.

This was enough for me to do the turn-in in Ak'Anon without any charms, potions or other gee-gaws.

Hope this helps.

I am not aware of any faction being involved. If there is, it is probably acquired through standard planar progression steps (e.g. the way you get faction for Askr by killing giants, and can thus get the Tactics key).

I think it's rude to take advantage of when people misprice things.

I've bought things that are mispriced and then kept an eye out for the seller to offer to sell it back for the original price, so they can fix their mistake. That's the right way to handle it IMO.

It's little different than if someone in a store hands you the wrong change back - don't keep it.

You shouldn't expect a reward, but I did see a guildmate we told to let someone buy back a 50k item they'd mispriced get a 15K reward for returning it.

I started doing the quest for this cloak when it was still new. I took a chance and spent 4.3K on all the quest components then camped in POI till the wires droped. I sold my first cloak for 9K. I was so happy with the 4.7K profit I did this 10 more times. Sold a total of 11 cloaks over the weekend and made about 60K. Enjoy =D
Well, business has been booming! the cost of the components to do the quest with have droped...this means if it costs 500pp for grease, 500pp for a shard, and 1-1.5K for the horn the max component cost is around 2-2.5K. So you can sell a cloak for 6K and still make a solid 4K profit. I have been selling them for about 6.9K to 7K so far. As of now I have sold 18 cloaks on the Rodcet Nife server and made over 110K in a 2 week period. Im a moron for posting this information but I am a very happy wizard and have capitalized this end of the market for a while now. I dont want SOE sueing me for monopolizing ya know.

You are so lucky, the horns sell so low on your server. I did this too at a nice profit for a while. But the people selling the horns wanted so much that it destroyed the market. Even now with the cloaks selling here for 7-8K its not unusual to seel people selling the horns for 8-9K, these people are just ridiculous. If you send them a tell they say the cloak is worth 10K and don't matter what someone is selling for now. Basically you have to wait till they drop it low enough, which takes forever and then it goes fast and the price is still too high considering the time it takes to sell the cloak and that the price may still drop more on the cloak. The profit/risk ratio isn't there with the horns so high in price on Xegony.

Location of Sanfyrd Featherhead in Ak'Anon is 2023, - 238 / just below one of the water falls. In fact you can see him from the top. I turned in the 4 parts needed and got the note. Then went to the library in PoK and took the elevator up to the top floor and found Aid Fimli there and turned in the note without ever talking with him first and got my cloak. Hope this helps.

This or Lodi????

Was wondering if this would be a better back slot item that the Lodizal Shell shield for a 57 War? Yes the Lodi has better AC, but the stats on this thing almost make me want to get it to use it instead. Any opinions on this matter would be appreciated.

Have the Lodi on my Rogue, and still grabbed this first chance for Str, Sta and HP upgrade. The Lodi will stay in my resist gear bag, and come out when needed for resists or swimming.

HP>>>>>All for a warrior.

Unless you are an offensive tank in which case you picked the wrong class. You want dps be a ranger or rogue, Warriors are to be beaten on.

Just as a FYI Sta adds 4.5Hps per 1 Sta for Leather and Silk (not sure about chain) for Plate classes 1 Sta adds 6Hps per.
But that is up to 255...After 255 you basically lose about 1/2, 1Sta for Leather & Silk will then be 2.5Hps & for plate its 3.6hps.

So as a Warrior IF you already have 255Sta you would get 36Hps from the 10Sta plus the 50Hps =86Hps IF you have ND3/PE that would then be 96Hps

If your lower lvl and have like 200Sta you would get 60Hps from Sta and 50Hps = 110Hps and its doubtfull you would have the ND3/PE at that point.

For a war this is way better, Lodi is good for casters.

This cloak is much better than a Lodi Shield for a Warrior. Warriors are all about HPs, and this cloak will give you plenty.

Lodi shields are great, my Rogue has both, but the Lodi shield is relegated to an EB item and resist gear when I need it. In your standard XP group, a Cloak of Greater Pernicity will serve you and your cleric much better.

Ok I just don't get it. Why are hp important? I can understand stamina because it goes into an equasion but 50 hp.....whoopti do who gives a damn. Thats not even one hit from a mob who cares. I'ld rather any stat other than hp gimmie 1 more stamina or something but anything but **** hp whoopdi do. Please give me an accurace explanation no flam wars just explain it throughly.

OK the way i see it is that stamina gives you hit points. from what i can tell 1 stamina is worth somewhere around 4.5 hit points i'm sure this is not 100% acurate but close anyway. so the 10 stamina on this item is worth around 45-50 hit points. the hit points on it equal the same doubling the total hit points on this item. 50 hit points doesn't seem like much you are right thats not even a hit from a mob. But when you add the 50hp from this and the 130 hit points from your rings and the hp from everything else you end up with ALOT of hit points. All combined together I have over 1k hit points from HP items which makes a HUGE diference in my total hit points. My total hit points make a huge diference because when in a group the more hit points i have the longer the cleric has to get a complete heal off. Add to that that when your stamina is maxed like on raids or groups where you have high lvl buffs you are mot getting any hit points from having extra stamina at all which makes the Hit points worth even that much more.

Hope that helps a bit.

problem I still see is the price paid for hp gear. There are so many other stats all of which help in their own way and I think dex and agi are under rated (may have something to do with my alt monk) but when 7k for something has just 75 hp cummon I would much rather +10 to every other stat.

And i think hp from 1 stamina is different than 4.5hp but an equasion based on level because whebn I level my ac atk and hp all jump without adding 1 stat.

alas maybe I will never embrace this concept and will never effectively play a warrior because of it.

I believe hp from sta depends on level and class, however you're still not getting much per point of sta...here's an example (I'm a lev 65 bard, so a 65 war would get more hp from sta, but just an example) this info comes from my char profile here on allak: I have +50 sta from items which gives me +217 hp (not bad, but still that's 50 sta), I however have an additional +450 hp from hp items alone (my gear is basically all buyable/1 groupable so it's all in the reach of any 60+ or so char). As for other stats? yes, they help, but at 65 with 0 planar power, my stat cap is 280, with 165str and 149 dex, both can pretty much be pushed to the cap with Fo7, Diaku, and Vallon buffs alone. With avatar and wrulan and boar in addition, my agi (132) is also pushed to cap, and my sta (124) get close to the cap too. This is why many warriors favor straight hp over other stats, because alot of xp groups have a shaman and/or a chanter and/or a beastlord and/or bard who will push some to all of your melee stats near max. (my warsong of zek adds 74 str and if I chose to use it, my dex song adds 48 dex (if I don't use my drum..120 dex if I do twist in my drum), so it's easy for me alone to push those 2 stats close to max). I hope this helps ya understand why many tanks look for hp gear over stat gear (with aas you can boost all yer stats by 30 or so, and raise the cap by 25 or so)

I am definitely going to wear this cloak, and being a rogue, it will give me a great deal of str. However, i will have my dex deducted, since my old cloak gave more dex. To a high lvl rogue, is str more important or is dex? i have about 215 in str and dex right now. any input would be appreciated
RE: um.... dilemma
# May 16 2003 at 11:32 AM Rating: Decent

Honestly if they are both 215 its mostly unimportant as both should be maxxed by buffs in most cases, the more important question is which cloak gives you more hp...likely this one with 10sta + 50hp
Maxed by buffs?

I guess it depends on where your AA are, but if you have 215 STR and it's routinely maxed by buffs you either haven't raised your caps or you're getting some amazing buffage.

Now, I play a necro for the most part, so I would never have a high STR, but even I'm drooling over this for the STA/CHA/AC/HP/mana. Most NEC don't know this, but CHA actually matters to you. I've heard that low CHA is good for fear, and that's fine, but I almost never fear in anything larger than a duo group.

On raids, if I do anything that needs CHA, it's Screaming Terror, and while CHA has no bearing on ST landing, it *does* change the mem-wipe percentage a LOT. In my own testing against the 50th level skelly quest mob in BW, I was able to go from about a 10-20% to around 30% mem-wipe rate on him for ST with only a small (30ish points) change in my CHA. In a raid where you're wiping mobs to defend the ENC as they AE mez the incoming hordes, this difference means that you live quite a bit longer.

In AC, I managed to spot-mez long enough that our chanter kept the whole raid alive with only 3 deaths when one of our party accidentally pulled about 20 mobs and a mini-boss at once. It was truely an example of what a raid full of people who know their classes and their jobs well can do.

It also goes to show that every stat has it's role and the conventional wisdom (low CHA for NEC) isn't always wise....

My unbuffed str is 139... I'm routinely maxxed at 270str in exp groups.

81 str buffed just from 1 song I'm singing, plus whatever else I get from the group

Interesting, I wasn't considering bards, and I guess I should. Most groups I'm in (not counting raids, here, since I tend to have buffs I can't PRONOUNCE, much less am used to having, in raids) don't have bards. NEC+CLR+MAG with SHM/WIZ/ROG/WAR/PAL/SHD/ENC fill-ins are what I'm generally used to, and I regularly request STR buffs when available for my pet (wow, what an impact on DPS!)

Thanks for the info!

Shard of Pure Energy, Sillicorrisve Grease and the Gold Tipped Boar Horn are all droppable, only the bundle of super conductive wires are no drop. (Not that it really matters, since the cloak itself is droppable)

This is a **** nice upgrade Smiley: smile and not that hard of a quest. The only NODROP part was from PoI and was the first thing I got...very quickly going down the right arm after zone-in.

Other parts I was lucky to get via guild groups and a guildie that had an extra shard :)

You need:
- a gold tipped boar horn (tactics)
- a shard of pure energy (BoT)
- a bundle of superconductive wires (PoI NODROP)
- sillicorrosive grease (PoI)

See Aid Fimli at the top of the library, who sends you to his uncle in Ak'Anon, who gives you a note to give back to Aid Fimli and voila - you have a cloak ... and a recipe for the tinkered crabcrackers.

Done!!

Shoot a tell to Narith on Brell. He's been selling these cloaks as of late, and I'm sure he wouldn't mind giving anyone more information about the quest itself.
